Pomegranate Salad Dressing

We tasted this for the first time in June/July. Does anyone know how to make this dressing?

It is ridiculously tasty and I think lower in calories than mayonnaise, my usual favourite.

many thanks
Debbie

Re: Pomegranate Salad Dressing

You can buy Sour Pomegranate Syrup in the supermarkets in Turkey but not in England. You mix it with Olive oil, like you would lemon juice. I always bring a bottle home with me when I go.

Re: Pomegranate Salad Dressing

One of the restaurant's in Didim do a BBQ Onion with pomegranate dressing and it is a great taste. Will try and find out how it is made.

Re: Pomegranate Salad Dressing

the name is nar eşkisi..esk ee see sour pomegranate mollasses..not the vinegar

its used a lot in Antakyan food..they make some great dishes with it..
they use it in dolma..in kısır salad..on salads...in Sarma..(stuffed vine leafs.)
this is usually produced in the home ..but lately because it has become popular in tourist places you can find it in the supermarkets so there are now factories turning it out...but getting it home made is better quality.
years ago if i'd had the money i would have exported this to somewhere like Harrods food hall..i had the ideas but not the lolly!

heres a recipe for kısır salad
the quantities are up to you...use your imagination...
soak some bulgur in hot water for about 10 minutes(this is cheating..traditionally its kneaded a long time by hand with just sprinklings of hot water)
chop spring onions finely and parsley
also chopped skinned and deseeded toms.
when the bulgur is swollen and cooled mix in the ingredients
mix some pepper paste and tomato paste together..not a lot again preference for hot pepper is up to you...about a large tablespoon should ne enough for colour and flavour
add some olive oil
and then add nar eşkisi
salt is up to you
you eat this using long crisp lettuce leaves..and whether you prefer loading it with a fork or scooping up using the lettuce its up to you
but this is delicious.
dont make it too greasy.. go sparingly with the olive oil.
i have a feeling ive done this recipe before...hmmm.

Re: Pomegranate Salad Dressing

If you are travelling back from Dalaman the Turkish Bazaar stocks Nar Eskili too in case you forget to buy it in resort. Also if you are in Marmaris you must go to Kervan Ocakbasi (kebab grill house) in Armutalan, next door to Club Julian. Not only is the food fantastic, but they do a delicious salad with the pomegranate sauce and walnuts on top.... yummy!

Re: Pomegranate Salad Dressing

I love nar eksisi. i always used to take bottles of it back to the states, and still do to relative etc.

shirl that is a good recipe for kisir, i always make that to take at pot lucks back in the states, everyone rants and raves over it...i embelish it ...and cheat.....
i actually cook the bulgur with tomatoe and pepper paste, then i add a jar of salsa.....
easy peasy.......

Re: Pomegranate Salad Dressing

We get ours from Murats Dad - He has a stall down Mavisehir market that sells all sorts of interesting spices and stuff from Anatolia.

Healthwise, Nar (pomegrante) has high levels of an anti-oxidant. Its reputed to keep the arteries clean and prevent heart disease :-)
